Decorated for the 4th {FINALLY}

I cannot believe that I just remember to decorate for the 4th, and then I did a half hearted job of it at that! I didn't get up into the attic to get out my favorite 4th decoration (Uncle Sam) for a variety of reasons, but I did buy a couple of new things for the mantle, so hopefully they will balance each other out of the effort scale...

Here is the mantle...
A close-up of the details...
The "liberty and justice for all" was aquired on super sale last year for a mere couple of dollars.  It "lives" on one of the shelves in my office, since you know, the justice for all is kind of part of my daily life, but I busted it out it's everyday spot for this holiday.  The little uncle sam in the parade car was purchased this week at Michaels on sale.  I thought he was too cute to pass up for $6!

I also got this cute little bucket this week at World Market...
I went into World Market because I wanted to see these placemats and napkins that I saw in their advertisement...they have the preamble on them.  I'm such a nerd that I totally covet those constitutional linens, but I'm waiting to see if they are still around on post-holiday sale.  Anyway, I thought this little vintage looking bucket was so cute and totally worth the $3.99.
I bought some flags, 3 for $1 at Michaels, and made a little arrangement...

On the coffee table, I have a runner...

Outside, I have some flags...
and a couple of other things...

And that's all folks!  Maybe I'll do better next year and Uncle Sam will get to see the light of day!
